IGNITE: The Alchemy of Hot Yoga 

 

Hot Yoga is exactly what it looks like, and so much more. It has the image of being a fitness-based yoga that offers no homage to classical yoga and verges toward being an extreme sport. Its appeal mirrors our wild cravings for ice baths, dietary cleansing, and silent retreats, in the name of life exploration. With the popularity of hot yoga in the West over the last 30 years, it’s time to dig deeper to uncover some of the universally sacred reasons why devotional practices and the use of heat have come together so nicely to help heal the ailments of the Western world. From sports injury healing to soul connection repair, hot yoga is truly a fusion that brings some major force to the holistic wellness scene.

WHAT TO EXPECT

This training is all about experiencing the transformative power of hot yoga through personal experience, and learning how to impart that experience to help others on their yoga path.

Much of the wisdom that yoga can offer to people of all walks of life comes from a yogis' application of the knowledge to their own life. Whether you are a practitioner of hot yoga for personal and spiritual development, or perhaps a teacher also, everything you have experienced can become a gift to others on their own journey.

You may talk about how yoga has helped you at work, or quietly embody the positive effects it has had on you in your home life. Just being yourself more each day and shining brightly in your sphere is what brings the light of healing awareness to this world. When you speak from a place of inner knowing, everything you share with another becomes a precious gift. This is the purpose and power of Yoga.
